Wake Sign With Metal Blade Records

Wake have signed a new deal with Metal Blade Records and are planning to enter the studio in July to record a new album with producer Dave Otero. The band commented:

“All of us in Wake have had a lot of regard both for Metal Blade and for the bands on its roster from any era. An endless stream of Metal Blade artists have been played in our van during any number of tours. For us, playing music has always been something that we’ve tried to do on our own terms and with our own vision. We’ve explored a lot of ground musically, and that was influenced by the history that Metal Blade was there to write. So, we’re very excited to say that we’ve joined up with Metal Blade. Expect a lot more noise from our camp in the near future.”

Origin Postpone North American Tour With Beneath The Massacre, Defeated Sanity, & Wake

Origin have postponed their North American tour with Beneath The Massacre, Defeated Sanity, and Wake due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek will now take place in the fall.

Origin commented:

“Well, ladies and gentlemen we all knew it was coming. For the past week we have tried to hold on and bring Occupation Domination to as many of you as possible but it has become abundantly clear that for the safety of fans, crew and bands alike we have decided to formally end the tour and return home. As of now we are planning on POSTPONING Occupation Domination until the fall of 2020.

For all purchased tickets please contact your point of sale for details on refunds. Stay safe and healthy during this crazy time and we will see you all as soon as possible. If you wish to help the band out, as this has been a huge financial blow to Origin as well as for most touring musicians, you can support us by picking up merch at our indiemerch webpage and we will very soon be putting up exclusive items from this tour on our own bigcartel store. We will get through this together, take care of each other. From the last band standing, see you soon. Hail space
